Tractor Safety Training Required by Law for Teen Farm/Ranch Workers

To serve as a delegate for either national experience, youth must turn ages 15-19 during the calendar year in which the trip occurs. Youth interested in being considered as a delegate for these national experiences must make that designation on their application.
